  1. I've got the same problem. QE worked just fine in 10.4.11 with my 4200Ti but I can't get it to work in 10.5.2.
  2. I have an idea why it only almost worked. Did you add your device ID to natit.kext? I just checked the info.plist file and while my id 0281 was already listed, I searched for 0286 and it was not there. I don't know if it makes any difference but if you haven't already, you could try adding it.
  3. Please help with GeForce4 ti 4200

  4. Hi all Here's how I got it working: I'll assume you all have the sse2 exp6 8.8.1 kernel, if not, I followed this guide (roughly). The version of natit I used was the Natit_Uni_1.0 installer package, I did not need to add my deviceID to the kext as it was already there. After installing Natit and rebooting I got a black screen instead of my desktop although it sounded as if things were still starting up normally even though I couldn't see it. (If this happens to you, just move NVDAResman.kext out of the extensions folder in singleuser mode). So I decided to add my device ID to a few NVidia kexts and see if that helped. NVDAResman.kext and GeForce.kext were the important ones. I also added it to NVDANV40Hal.kext but have since found that that kext is for newer cards and my computer was loading both the NVDAN40 and NVDAN20 kexts, I removed the NVDAN40 one. Since I didn't really expect it to work, I was really surprised when my computer started up and instead of a black screen I got a blue screen with a cursor (with a dropshadow - QE ). I was even more surprised when it didn't crash but started up normally. The System Profiler reports QE as being supported (and everything runs much smoother). CI is not supported but I'm fairly sure CI requires pixelshaders2 (FX cards and newer only). It also still reports my card as being PCI instead of AGP, but I havn't had any luck with AGPGart yet. Hope this info helps. Also, if anyone is wondering my card is a Leadtek GeForce 4 TI 4200 128MB with AGP8X (Dev/vendorID 028110de) so if you have that card you should be successful. Note: although I don't actually know if it's necessary, I ran the commands in fixup.sh (attached) before each reboot (clears kextcache and repairs permissions). edit: to see which kexts are loading (and the versions) type kextstat into terminal fixup.sh.zip kextstat.txt
  5. My NVIDIA 4200 Ti card works with Natit. QE only, CI is not supported by this card.
  6. I have a similar problem. I have a HD with 3 NTFS partitions, the first (8GB) and second (27GB) mount automatically. However the third (39.5GB) doesn't mount (greyed out disk1s6 in DiskUtil). I can force it to mount with mount_ntfs however it doesn't show up until I enter its path in Go>Go to folder, and some folders in the drive also don't show up until their path is manually entered. I'm guessing its something to do with the size of the drive but I dunno.
